Question about HP Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook

Open Question

No sound at all

When I try to play a song, or insert a music disk, the R4000 says there is no sound card, or it is in use by another program....since there are no other programs running.... There is no sound at powerup or any other time.

Thanks

    Hmmm....it appears that the operative word here is drivers. Even for items that have no apparent connection to the sound card. I installed new drivers for a few items that needed them, and the system is back up and working!

Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver


Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

How to use the built in 5 in 1 card reader in acer extensa 4230? and how to download music into a sandisk microsd 2gb card using the built in card reader inacer extensa 4230?


I am glad to HELP YOU!

That "5 in 1 card reader" is exactly what it says it is: a UNIVERSAL CARD READER.
All you have to do is to insert the card into the slot and the machine will detect it automatically and will read it.
The microSD cards should be inserted first into a microSD card adapter and after that the both should be inserted into the slot.
As for downloading music right on the microSD card do like this:
# insert the microSD card into its adapter [together should look like a regular SD card]
# insert the adapter into the slot
# the machine will detect the SD card [just wait until it is detected]
# choose your song [mp3, wma etc.]
# right-click on the song and where it asks whre to be downloaded you will choose MY COMPUTER > double-click > the letter corresponding to your SD card.
You're done!
Do the same with all songs.


GOOD LUCK!

Two problems: 1. All the CD music I burn do not play in my car's and home stereo. 2. My computer is getting slow in opening programs and files.


are you burning the music cd's in the music format to be converted over and finalize the disk? you cant burn them as mp3s. if your able to fit more then 18 or so songs then you are burning it as an mp3/data disk instead of a music disk. if your computer is getting really slow i recommend you download an anti virus if you haven't already (such as avg FREE) and a spy ware malwayre removal called malwarye bites.

I'm not hearing sound from my laptop type presario compaq R4000


You require sound card drivers
Look in your user manual for what sound card you have and then look for drivers for that part of sound card makers website.

I had to download all kinds of drivers to get my computer to do basics like viewing movies hearing music and finally burn music now i learned i can only save data(lots of songs at one time) or make a cd on...


cd-r80 are for music. Your best option is to buy a program like nero. I assume you are just dragging and dropping files to burn them right now. dvd's are more meant for backing up data or making movies because they hold a lot more data then a cd. Are you able to burn disc's at all? Just like all things involved with computers it can get complicated real quick.I hope this helps a little and if you have more questions let me know
Thanks,
Lee

No audio file will play on WMP, no dvd or audio disk will play...


Windows Media Player cannot play several files in the playlist. This might be caused by one or more problems.
To find information about the specific problems, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the blue or red icon next to each file in the List pane.
In some cases, you might encounter this error message if there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. For example:
  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again
